    Are you thinking of member board messages? They go to everyone.

    As in if you report a visitor message, not that we get all the messages themselves, just any reports like if someone complains their visitor board is being spammed.

    I've said it before on other thread(s):

    I think our volunteer moderators do a fabulous job. I my line of work (I'm a programmer/analyst), it's hard to find such dedication, even if there is a paycheck involved. So, thanks to all our moderators.

    As far as the spam that slips through the cracks, we need to remember that our moderators are human, and have lives outside of the forum.

    And, some spam is funny, you have to admit!

    And here's a big ol virtual slice of cranberry cheesecake for all our mods! Don't like cheesecake? I'll make you something else!

    I was just wondering about the spam issue, seeing as I have just reported two seperate spammers, I don't see this kind of stuff on other forums I visit, only here. Is it this place is being specifically targeted or is it likely other websites have different mechanisms in place to rid the stuff before it hits.

    I know one site I visit, type a descriptive rude slang word, and it comes out on the other side as something else that sounds like the word, but is spelled completely different and there means something else.

    Often I see with the spammers that hit this place, they post a link that is all, perhaps something could be done where if it is just a link that is posted, then it can be assumed to be spam and there disallowed, or deleted.

    I think forum members who post links, often accompany the link with a few words, as I have not seen just links posted from any bona fide member, always there is something accompanying the link, even if it is just a smiley.

    Must be spam week festival

    The latest lot seems to be coming from the same person/people. With all the letter-number names it can seem like lots of different people, but it is often not. Obviously theses people have nothing better to do with their time.
